MORE GUP SHUP, MARCH 25, MAJDOOR LIBRARY, 11 A.M.
11 a.m. onwards...
To contribute to radical social transformations that are mushrooming all over the world, feel free about: stammering, fragmentariness, incoherence, missing steps... Social (and natural) reality are very complex and dynamic.
Leaps in interactions amongst seven billion human beings are on our agenda.
It is only in the present that we can act/prepare to act. What to do and what not to do, how to do and how not to do are coloured by the different facets/sectionalities in the present and also carry deep imprints of the past (not only near and distant past but also different pasts of different locations/groups).
So a request: Try not to be polemical; try not to attempt to clinch arguments; try to respect your own selves (by implication you will respect those around you).
Primarily it is to act, it is for better actions that this gup-shup is premised on.
"Cataclysmic event" language and imagery seems problematic; languages and imageries that are premised on active participations of seven billion human beings are indispensable for radical social transformations.
Conversation will be in both Hindi and English.
